    Summary

    I have been asked a few times now, why the title? As Sister Evie said babies don't slide out like lubricated penguins and her admonishment always reminds me fics don't either.
    The stories in this series (so far) presented a challenge in some way or had a difficult birth, but inspite of or maybe because of that, they are among my favourites.

    So this series will be predominantly non-Turnadette focused, as they have their own series in "Minding the Gaps" .

    The latest penguin (chapter 8) features Phyllis and Lucille.

    Summary

    What if Sister Julienne never offered to allow Delia to stay at Nonnatus? What if Delia and Patsy lost touch?
    Set eight years later. Patsy has a daughter, Delia is alone, the future open to both.

    A re-writer and something that's hopefully better than my other piece 'At Last'. A lot of the beginning chapter will be similar to other piece but there's some differences.

    Summary

    Nonnatus had been covered in a thick blanket of mourning. Delia felt as though her limbs were made of lead as she sat on the staircase with the midwives. She couldn’t help thinking she was an intruder in this moment, that she had no right to be there. This was their loss, their tragedy.
